Emma Negrete (l.) with Vocal Program Chair, Debra Byrd
The first-ever Universal Citywalk Hollywood Vocal Scholarship has been awarded to Musicians Institute Vocal Program student: Emma Negrete. The Des Moines, Iowa native earned the prestigious award with a strong demonstration of her Soul/R&B musical skills.
Describing her reasons for coming to MI, Emma states, “the thing I want to learn from MI is how to fuse my sound with a pop sound. I look forward to learning how to be a better songwriter and become fluent with Logic/Protools. The reason I chose MI is because I am in love with the idea of a place that helps you develop yourself as an artist.”
She sees her education as an important key to achieving her career goals of being able to “win a Grammy and climb the Pop/R&B Charts.”
Everyone at MI would like to congratulate Emma on winning this prestigious award.
